Manchester United legends Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt could not believe their eyes as their Salford City side pulled off a stunning FA Cup first round win at Notts County on Friday night.

Along with fellow United greats Ryan Giggs and Phil Neville, the quintet bought little Salford with a dream of taking them into the Football League.

What they did not expect was for their first season as club owners to include a magical FA Cup run this season, with League Two side Notts County their high profile victims in the biggest game of Salford's history.

Former Man Utd keeper Roy Carroll was among the beaten County players as Salford pulled off their miracle win, with the reaction of Neville, Scholes and Butt in the crowd summing up their excitement.
